hi there.

Welcome to my blog. I'm spending a year capturing happiness, and I invite you to come along as I journey toward a more joyful living. I also write about travel, food, and matters of the spirit. Hope you enjoy!

Pyramids of Egypt

Pyramids of Egypt

It just doesn't get any cooler than this: we rode a camel in the Egyptian desert and saw ancient pyramids and the Sphinx.

I have no words.

Pictures are worth thousands.

THIS IS REAL, GUYS

We also got to crawl down into one of the pyramids. It is truly deserving of its world wonder status--everything about today was completely fascinating. I felt like I was a character in The Mummy movies; we even went to an Imhotep museum! (Not so named because of the movie, but rather because he really was the pharoah's assistant and built the pyramid).

Anyhow--it was my favorite day of scavenges so far. The rest of the day was awesome too, minus thinking we'd die in the taxi ride.  

Tomorrow is our last day in Cairo and the Pope is visiting. Should be interesting...
